“Zhona Zhi” is the shortened version of the phrase “Zhona vuzha’i zhiro mikar” or “Goddess grant me (merciful) courage.” (Directly it’s “goddess to me merciful courage grant,” but that’s because Pamaru has a different grammar structure than English. And I’m being a nerd again, aren’t I? RIGHT, CARRYING ON…)
If you weren’t able to attend DCC, I was part of a panel that spoke on webcomics — social media, merchandising, community building, and other issues that a webcomic creator can face. It was recorded by the blogger behind The videogame blog, Gameslave! You can hear the entire recording here! (Plus, I brag you guys up, for being awesome readers. But you knew that already 😉 )
This week’s Spider Forest Comic Feature: SPINE is an action packed Sci-Fi, Steam-Cyberpunk story about a dystopian future. Cities are destroyed, Industry is long gone, but hope remains within the SUNDRIVE; and Spine almost had it. If you like the world-exploration aspect of LeyLines, you’re in for a similar type of adventure in a vastly different story. SPINE is intense from the very first page, and you learn as you go, putting pieces together while Spine navigates underwater labs, kills tigers, and escapes certain doom at the horn of a rhino whale. Fairly bloody and visceral, so check it out if you like action on the grittier side of things!
